How to Hire an Accountant for Your Cannabis Business
Maintaining proper accounting records is arguably the most important part of operating a cannabis business in the United States.
Why is accounting important for cannabis businesses?
When it comes to cannabis, maintaining proper accounting records isn’t just a nice-to-have: it’s crucial.
Tax Code 280E is a federal tax code currently preventing state-legal cannabis businesses from deducting most business expenses from their taxes, aside from the Cost of Goods Sold (COGS), since cannabis is classified as a controlled substance.
Determining the COGS can be tricky, there’s a lot of gray area. That’s why your accountant should fully understand the cannabis industry.
What to look for in a cannabis accountant:
The best accountants for your business have a proven, verifiable track record in the cannabis industry. If they don’t, they answer to someone who does.
Here are some questions to ask:
- How long have you been serving cannabis clients?
- How do you help your clients navigate 280E?
- Do you have experience serving clients like me (startups, vertically-integrated operations, multi-state operators, dispensaries, etc.)?
- Do you have any client testimonials I can see?
- Can you tell me what accounting services you do and don’t perform for a cannabis business like mine?
